About Me

I'm a Wall Street an ex-Wall Street lawyer seeking to expand my horizons by flexing those long-dormant creative muscles.  For more on my current state of voluntary unemployment, check out my blog post relating to that decision here.

As for my creative muscles, well, reading romance stories has been a passion of mine for many years, so the next step was naturally to try my hand at writing one. When a romance group of which I'm a member had a call for authors, I raised my hand.  Since then, I've been writing regularly and was fortunate enough to have a few of my stories accepted for publication (yes, I was shocked, too!), so I guess you could say I've pretty much dived into the deep end with this author stuff.  I was interviewed by the editor of the Going for Gold anthology, which can be found here, and by the blog Prism Book Alliance here if you'd like to know more about me.

My trademark word "smuff" comes from my ridiculous love of made-up words. Smuff describes what I love to read and write: smut + fluff! *grins*
